    so sorry to hear about uncle Jerry. He always took time to talk to me about our mutul interests. Flying , farming and building. Last time I talked to him, he asked me if I ever use new materials to build with, I said yes and he said “ you ain’t no Barrett!”

    I have fond memories of Uncle Jerry when he lived in California while we were growing up. He was young, funny, and always talked to us kids.
    I remember during Mary and Hugh’s anniversary in Branson Missouri he was doing dive bombs in the swimming pool with the grandkids.
    He had a zest for life. My sympathy to all the family but especially Becky, Cathy, and Brian.
    God Bless you all
